Former Governor of Alaska Sarah Palin exposed another major incident of hypocrisy in the liberal media. In a recent Facebook post, she defended the beleaguered Duggar family and skewered the, “intolerant left’s destructive personal intrusions and narrow-mindedness applied to their chosen targets.”
As evidence, Gov. Palin took aim at the way the liberal media reacted to HBO series Girls star, Lena Dunham’s revelation that she had used, “anything a sexual predator might” to lure her younger sister Grace into performing sexual acts. Dunham detailed her “sexual experiments” in her bestselling memoir, Not That Kind of Girl.
In contrast to how the entire Duggar family has been treated, Dunham received no backlash from the media. In fact, when some spoke up to condemn her behavior, those on the left rushed to justify and dismiss her acts.
While Palin made it clear that she would not defend then 14-year-old Josh Duggar’s apparent misconduct, she pointed to how the media’s feeding frenzy has exposed and once again victimized the innocent Duggar sisters, whose rights to privacy as minor victims has been completely disregarded as the media gleefully destroys an entire family’s reputation.
“I’m not defending the Duggar boy’s obvious wrongdoing over a decade ago. The main victim in any story like this isn’t the perpetrator, it’s the innocent ones so harmfully affected. I’m not an apologist for any sexual predator, but I’m sickened that the media gives their chosen ones a pass for any behavior as long as they share their leftwing politics. Case in point, they suggest Lena Dunham’s sexual assault on her sibling is cute, and she’s rewarded for it with fame and fortune. Meanwhile, they crucify another, along with an entire family.”
